South Korea’s first openly gay singer Holland released his first mini album “HOLLAND.” This self-titled album was made by Holland’s fans who supported his mini album production through a fan project with MyMusicTaste. Holland’s fans raised $108,568, achieving 217% of its original campaign goal.
In collaboration with MyMusicTaste, a global online service that allows music fans to request their favorite artists’ live performance, Holland was able to successfully produce his first mini album and music videos to share with his supportive fans.
The title track of the album, “Nar-c,” is an EDM song with a dash of deep house sounds. Through his new album, Holland shares his life journey in trying to break free from his own fears and find his true colors. The music video for HOLLAND’s title track, “Nar-C,” is available to watch on https://youtu.be/NHmBKxkjXeY.
After debuting in 2018 as the first Korean singer to begin his career while openly addressing sexuality, Holland has quickly caught the attention of K-pop fans around the world, gaining a sizable following on social media. “Neverland,” his debut single that depicts a same-sex romance between two men, brought a sensation to Korea where homosexuality is rarely addressed in pop culture. The music video garnered international attention, racking up over 11 million views on YouTube since its release. Recognized for his social influence, this revolutionary singer has been featured in media such as Billboard, Forbes, and Cosmopolitan, and was selected as the winner of the 2018 Dazed 100, winning over a number of Hollywood stars such as Sadie Sink and Millicent Simmonds. Currently, Holland is scheduled for a world tour to meet his beloved fans.
